Clarion CMV1 Waterproof head unit questions

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about these head units and if so arethey worth checking into? Was thinking about it for my Rubicon, technically I know they are sold for marine use but just makes sense for off roaring and such. It's a little pricey though at like $700. I am just having issues trying to decide the best possible set up for my amp and sub. I know a wrangler is not ideal for sound Q and I'm not asking for to hear symphony quality but I still want a rich clean sound with a nice bass. I still want to use my wrangler too for what it was intended for so I have limited space to work with.
Anybody have any ideas?
Thanks, Tara

Personally I think the differences would be minor... you can buy nice marine headunits for between $100-200. I'd recommend getting a decent marine headunit from the price range I mentioned and then take that extra $500+ and put it toward some other mods you wanna do.
